Thanks for help guys. I made it same way as it was on manual, but it didnt help. sadsmiley.gif

Can Bios reflash help? I have 5002 already, but maybe reflash it again. Im not sure if reflash to same version is supported. If not than maybe reflash to older version and than back to 5002? That do you think? Or do you have any other suggestions?

One other thing. On ASUS support list the Phenom II X4 910e is listed as HD910EOCK4DGM. But mine is boxed version HD910EOCGMBOX. Can this cause compatibility problems? If Im right, they are same processors, just different package.


Thanks,

Mike

Flash BIOS is only a problem if done wrong. smile.gif I used to live on the edge and do this job through Windows, but in hindsight was not a good idea.

And it won't hurt anything to do it again. Just make sure you use a USB flash drive. Make sure you clear CMOS, etc to reset defaults.You might also want to try doing all this with a stripped down system.

I would try a re-flash, it wouldn't hurt. just make sure you do the same thing to clear it by moving the jumper/battery before you start it back up. I never knew they made a 65W Phenom II.

Well the CPU you have is based on the Deneb core which is the most compatible CPU for our boards. If you get the system started into windows, use CPU-Z to make sure it's running at the correct speed. If it's running at 800MHz, you might have to use the Ntools/PMT method like we have to use with the 955-980 to get it to run at it's proper speed. (it's unlikely you will have to do this)

Yeah I used to do this too till I actually bricked a M2N doing that.

If you believed CPUZ, I could sell you a 65W 965BE !!! rolleyes.gif

And yet I can't tell you the numerous times I've updated BIOS on my IBM/Lenovo laptops. But will never do that to an Asus board.

For reasons unknown, I decided to buy a CHVF, a CoolerMaster HF932 advanced and some other stuff.

I'm 99% sure the job is done and am taking a short pause to be followed by a hopefully not-smoke test, and learning how to navigate around ASUS' new UEFI BIOS interface.

About the case, the good news is that the top is setup to accept radiators to vent heat, so that's a good thing.

I'm not yet completely sold on the layout, but there's lots of room inside and the cable management is infinitely better than my old Antec Sonata. II, but that's really an apples and oranges comparison. Case comes with four fans of various sizes, so I'm guessing the interior will be kept well ventilated. The disk drive mounting mechanisms are first rate.

The one obvious issue I'm noting is that if you run 3 GPUs on this thing, the lowest card sits very close to the top of the PSU, and the PCI-E 1x, PCI and fourth PCI-E 16x slots are effectively all blocked. frown.gif

For now I'm using the stock BE heat-sink, so I'm only hoping to reach the same OC level as I had on the M2N32, although I would like to see if I can push the IMC much harder than I could get away with on the old board.

I did end up going with the G.Skill Sniper DDR3 1600MHz RAM, and that's a crap shoot since I didn't take the time to validate compatibility with the CHVF.

Hey, my brother has the Asus M2N-E board, we just ordered him a Phenom II X955, besides updating the bios to the newest what all if anything will we need to do to get it going?

It should be here monday or tuesday just trying to get the last bit of life out of his setup without having to replace everything as he can't afford too right now.

I hope you have fun building your new system. :-)

Take a look at the first page in this thread & read the information about the nvidia tools.

Yes, I admit that enjoy doing this type of work I suppose as a hobby. I'll post some pics soon so you can see what's been going.

It was nice to see that the 965 was properly recognized and configured along with the RAM. So far it is in stock trim. I will get around to OC once I do some final adjustments to the setup.

Does your CHIV have a 4 pin Molex connector too? The user guide specifically says to power this connector when using multiple graphics cards and this is new to me.

Hi guys! smile.gif
I've been running for around a year I think now, since I upgraded to Phenom 965BE with the help of this thread.
I am wondering whether we have any workarounds to the known issues such as having to remove USB every time windows boots, having to reset CPU speed every time through nVidia tools (saving the profile doesn't do anything apparently).

Its getting tiresome...

Any new BIOS versions? other workarounds? ideas?

The Crossahir IV Formula does not have any extra power connectors. I did however recently buy a Crossair IV Extreme that was on sale and that board actually has two of them. I imagine that they are primarily needed when using high end GPUs with ridiculously high power consumption.
